San Marino Lunar New Year Festival
San Marino City Club participated as a sponsor in San Marino’s First Lunar New Year Festival on January 28, 2023 in Lacy Park, San Marino. The San Marino Chinese Club hosted this inaugural event and featured lively performances and engagement from the entire San Marino community.
La Gran Fiesta
“La Gran Fiesta” is held in June at the El Molino Viejo (The Old Mill), San Marino’s historic treasure. City Club members and their guests enjoy a Mexican dinner prepared by a local catering firm, listen to the melodies played by a classical musician, and celebrate the end of the school year and the beginning of summer.
San Marino Motor Classic
In June 2012 a splendid new Concours, called the San Marino Motor Classic, debuted on the sprawling main lawn of Lacy Park. Featuring nearly 200 classic cars of all eras—from a Brass Era 1909 Pierce-Arrow Touring to a 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO—there was depth and breadth enough to satisfy everyone. The Concours benefits the Pasadena Humane Society, and the San Marino Rotary Club Charities and City Club has committed its support. For more information and registration to the San Marino Motor Classic, visit the sanmarinomotorclassic.com website.
Fourth of July Parade
Along with other community groups, San Marino City Club has traditionally entered a “float” in the community parade that culminates in Lacy Park. The “float” consists of a classic convertible car rather than an elaborately decorated vehicle. The City Club president or another officer usually rides in the car. The Fourth of July Celebration fills Lacy Park and includes games for children, several bands, and a spectacular 25-minute fireworks show which concludes the evening.
4th of July VIP Pavilion
The Pavilion is an exclusive, premium area in Lacy Park. Enjoy community socializing, entertainment, dinner and beverages. This event is organized by the San Marino City Club in cooperation with the City of San Marino. Advance reservations are required and space is limited. Reserve your table and meals at https://www.4thjulypavilion.com.
Sports is the theme of the regular September dinner meeting. Children and grandchildren are welcome guests at this meeting.
Rose Court Dinner (November Dinner Meeting)
Each November, the City Club dinner meeting hosts the Tournament of Roses President along with the Rose Queen and her Court. This is one of our most popular events as daughters and granddaughters attend with our members to meet and dine with Royalty.
PRESENTATION OF CANDIDATE DEBATES, COMMUNITY FORUMS, AND TOWN MEETINGS
San Marino City Club encourages the highest standards of citizenship by sponsoring public forums or debates prior to city-wide elections, including city council, school board, and local bond financing elections. The debates are often videotaped for later viewing online.
